the tour of the cathedral included in the ticket did not take place; guide Ana very prepared and competent, a pity that not always her explanations through the radios we could not hear each other because the too large group scattered along the stairs to reach the dome and therefore the signal did not arrive

Our tour led by Zeynep was a wonderful way to start our time in Florence! She did an excellent job at taking us through the main areas of the city, pointing out the highlights and most popular sites of the city. She also filled us in on the best local cuisine places/shopping places that are not tourist traps. 10/10 would recommend this tour!

Climbing the dome is an unforgettable experience. See Florence from the small platform, of course, but above all admire the incredible paintings up close. Going up also allows you to better understand the architecture of the building. Excellent guide which completes and clarifies all that one works to read beforehand. Unavoidable !
